How to fix SharePoint 2013 Web Application error “The context has expired and can no longer be used”

October 22nd, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: CloudShare, SharePoint | Tags: , , , ,


I came across this odd error a couple of times in the past few weeks, so I wrote a quick guide that might help you get rid of it.

If you see this error after opening your SharePoint 2013 site, there is a lack of synchronization between Date and Time settings in your SharePoint 2013 Server and your SharePoint web application.

Sorry, something went wrong. The context has expired and can no longer be used. (Exception from HRESULT: 0×80090317)

CloudShare Introduces – Web Access: Added Ports

February 5th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: CloudShare | Tags: , ,


Ok.  We told you once, twice, now three times.  Web Access is a tremendous feature.  We love it, you love it.  And yet again we improved it. That’s right, today’s release includes yet another major change to the web access feature.

If you are not familiar with web access let me tell you a little about it.  The Web Access feature allows you to share the web application on your CloudShare Pro virtual machines to anyone, without giving them direct access to the virtual machine. The way it works is for all machines that have Web Access enabled, we generate a unique URL that does not change. It looks something like this: http://uvoa98dbebf6c.env.cloudshare.com.  Hand that URL out and recipients will be seeing your application without accessing the virtual machine directly.

Are you testing or developing a web application?  Do you want to share the web application with others, like you would with any web application?  We have an awesome new feature in CloudShare ProPlus to do just that.  The Web Access feature is an efficient way to test, share, and work on your web application as you would any web application, via a URL.  For every environment, you create in CloudShare, we allow you to enable the “Web Access” feature.  When you enable this feature, you get a static URL that will not change while the environment exists or the feature enabled.
